Tech Talk: Peace Through Entrepreneurship

2016-04-20 CDT Tech Talk LONG logo

CDT’s Tech Talk is a podcast where we dish on tech and Internet policy, while also explaining what these policies mean to our daily lives. You can find Tech Talk on SoundCloud and on iTunes.

What’s the key to peace in the world? That’s a question humanity has been trying to answer since the dawn of civilization. Many have tried to find peace through diplomacy and others through military might. Steven Koltai, our guest on this episode of Tech Talk, has a more novel answer to the question – entrepreneurship.

In his new book, “Peace Through Entrepreneurship”, Steven explains why he believe entrepreneurship should be elevated as a foreign policy tool, arguing that it is a uniquely American export that can help address the underlying issues of conflict today – the lack of jobs.
